The Environmental Defender's Office (EDO) of the ACT is a Community Legal Centre. Our aim is to protect the environment through the law. There are EDOs right across Australia, and, as you might have noticed, they are now under a concerted attack from political and mining interests.

That's why we need you to become environmental defenders too. With your support, we can make sure that the law protecting the environment is upheld and strengthened; and that people get to see how our environmental law can work.

We all value sustainability. Here's how you can help make the EDO sustainable and even more effective:

  1. Bring your friends along to the launch of our new ACT Environmental Law Handbook and enjoy fabulous food, wine and entertainment.
  2. Bid for fantastic art and celebrity auction items, with proceeds helping to keep the EDO ACT up and running. 
  3. Donate an item for renowned auctioneer Roland Manderson to auction on the night (contact Peter Horne 0410038564 to donate). 

 Thanks to our many, generous supporters you could:

  • Enjoy a day in the life with the real 'Rake', Charles Waterstreet
